  10. Macs are out right better, if you can handle the expenditure. They age way better than windows laptops, hold their resale value longer and can run Windows natively via BootCamp.

  21. Apple's computers used to be good. It was made for doing works. Me and my family have been customers since their g3 imacs.My father used to have them for his graphic designing and it was very cutting edge back then. But nowadays they are just overpriced decoration accessories, Since SteveJobs passed away. the products get a lot worst, faster than i thought. They are Easily malfunction, Easily overheat and breakdown. After 2 years+ mostly of your softwares and OS will be outdated. You won't be able to use many new version softwares you used to. They won't let you have any options for older version apps downloads. And they don't give a damn about you because you are an outdated customer. Either buy new ones or deal with it
    I had macbookpro15inch 2012. the graphic card fried lastyear. Repair price was so high. I decided to investthat amount of repair cost into new desktop pc. Which the spec is 3times better edge compare to my mbp back when it was newly released.

  28. A laptop that kicks off Macbook Pro of the playing field: Asus N552VX
